Note: this is not complete tutorial for hosting jekyll blog
If you are hosting jekyll blog for a project then by default rule of github page it will be hosted under
The appropriate setting for this in your jekyll’s config file i.e.
_config.yml would be:
baseurl: "/project-name" # the subpath of your site, e.g. /blog/ url: "http://username.github.io" # the base hostname & protocol for your site
Missing the trailing slash in
baseurl won’t locate resource properly and you may see site with no css applied. This may be frustrating while blog will be working fine in local.
